Destination Information

ABOUT THE TERRITORY:
The Andaman & Niccobar Island is a group islands in the Bay of Bengal and a Union Territory of India. The territory is located geographically 150 km (93 mi) north of Aceh in Indonesia and separated from Thailand and Burma by the Andaman Sea. It comprises two island groups, the Andaman Islands and the Nicobar Islands, separated by the 10° N parallel, with the Andamans to the north of this latitude, and the Nicobars to the south. The Andaman Sea lies to the east and the Bay of Bengal to the west.
The territory's capital is the Andamanese town of Port Blair; it consists of about 527 islands both small and large. The coastline of the Islands stretches for about 100 Kms. The Islands are covered with dense forests all around. The area of the Islands is about 8,293 square kilometers. The Islands consist of 2 groups, the Andaman and Nicobar. These two groups are separated by about 300 Km the capital city is Port Blair. Of the total land area 92% of the land is covered with rain forests. Of the 527 islands, in only 38 islands we find the inhabitants.
The rest of the land is barren. Andaman and Nicobar Islands lie close to the Arakanmayo mountain range of Burma, which lies to the sides of Sumatra of Indonesia. Andaman is a developing land, with people being cultured and literate.
The Nicobar Islands are still inhabited by primitive tribes and backward communities. The population of the whole land is about 5 lakhs. Men and women populate equally. 2.5 lakh people have the right to vote. We can find high mountains, lush green forests, wide roads, new buildings and long coastline where are some entering features of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands which make it beautiful.

RELIGION:
The religion of animism at Andaman and Nicobar Islands is based on the belief in the existence of souls, ghosts and spirits. This religion stresses on the existence of evil spirits in the sea, the wood, ancestors and diseases. According to popular belief, one should try and avoid any deed that might enrage these spirits. This primitive religion claims that as soon as a person dies, his or her soul gets detached from the body and the person becomes a ghost.

A follower of this religion does not believe in the grandeur and ceremony associated with worship and placation. The people of these islands do not believe in the concept of hell and heaven and religious resurrection. They give a lot of importance to dreams and they let their dreams control the subsequent actions that they take in life.

The other Andaman and Nicobar Islands religions include Islam, Hinduism, Christianity, Buddhism, Sikhism and Jainism.

The followers of this religion generally avoid any action that might displease him. They are afraid that if Paluga gets angry with the people of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, then he might cause harm to the jungles, the main source of livelihood of these hunting and gathering people.

CULTURE:
The primitive tribes of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands were the Shompens, Onge, Great Andamanese, Jarawa, Sentinelese and others. Most of these small tribes came into contact with modern civilization and slowly lost most of their cultural identity. The Jarawa and Sentinelese became insular and even resorted to violent means to protect their cultural identity. The Jarawa have slowly given in but the Sentinelese culture based on tribe, family and clan still remains intact. On the other hand, the Nicobarese were larger in numbers and gradually integrated modern civilization into their socio-cultural structure. Their cultural fabric is woven around clan, religion and economy. They are best known for their love for music and dance.

The main crafts of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands include shell and exotic woods crafted for the tourists, palm mats, and beautiful natural shells. Due to the fear of over exploitation of the Islands'' natural resources, trade of some products is now banned like mother-of-pearl jewellery, paduk, which is now banned.

CLIMATE:
The climate of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands is tropical but is moderated by sea breezes. Temperatures typically rise from the low 70s F (about 23 °C) into the mid-80s F (about 30 °C) daily throughout the year. The territory receives roughly (3,000 mm) of rain annually, brought mainly by the southwest monsoon, which blows from May through September, and by the tropical cyclones that follow in October and November. In the Nicobars, Great Nicobar receives considerably more rain than the other islands. The Andamans have long provided meteorological data for shipping in the Bay of Bengal; a reporting station was in operation at Port Blair as early as 1868.

LANGUAGE:
There are two distinct inhabitants of the islands - The ''Indians'' and the ''Natives''. The former are people from the Indian mainland especially from Punjab, West Bengal, and Tamil Nadu as well as immigrants from Myanmar and Sri Lanka.

The native or the Aborigine tribes are the main reason why the islands have an aura of wild abandonment about them. The indigenous tribes are distinguished as two groups: the Onge, Sentinelese, Jarawa and Andamanese of Negroid descent living on the Andaman Islands and the Shompen and Nicobarese of Mongoloid descent living in the Nicobar Islands. Most of these tribes are on the verge of extinction because of the combined impact of destruction of the forest habitats and the imposition of an alien and insensitive culture that brought along with it various diseases and vices such as alcohol and tobacco.

The two Negrito communities, the Jarawa and the Sentinelese have avoided contact with the outside world and often resorted to violence to do so. Perhaps they realise that their only way of survival is to avoid contact with the outside world. This however appears to be changing in
The case of the Jarawa. Whereas the number of Great Andamanese declined because of the various epidemics, the Onge are suffering on account of the destruction of their forests and the imposition of a way of life that is alien and insensitive to them. The Nicobarese are fortunate to have found it easier to assimilate into the contemporary Indian society.

English and Hindi are widely spoken, as are Bengali and Malayalam. The ethnic language spoken in Andaman bears no resemblance to any other language spoken in India.

CUISINE OF ANDAMAN & NICCOBAR:
No particular cuisine has developed in Andaman and Nicobar Islands because the tribes were hunters who lived on what the forest produced. However, several settlers from all parts of India inhabit the island adding their own particular flavours and foods. The people are essentially rice eaters. The soil is not suitable for the growth of many fruits and vegetables that have to be shipped in from Chennai. Seafood is available in plenty and many restaurants serve fresh seafood. Seafood is the specialty of the Andaman Islands. The unpolluted water of Andaman Sea abounds with varieties of fish, crabs, lobsters, prawns etc. It is easily available and deliciously cooked. North Indian, South Indian, vegetarian, continental, Chinese dishes are also available. From high up, it is probably just a cluster of over 572 small and large emerald islands surrounded by blue waters. And really, nothing can prepare you for the stunning beauty that greets you as you set foot here.
Coral reefs in Andaman are of the fringing type, often several hundred meters wide and separated from the shore by a lagoon of similar width. A barrier reef to the west has also been reported but its precise coordinates are yet unknown.
The coral diversity until a few years back was among the highest in Indian reefs, with 133 species under 57 genera.
Coming to the bars of Andaman and Nicobar one can only say that they are fabulous. You have here best liquors of the world served at your order, right from the red whine to the James bond martini shaken not stirred.

TOUR ATTRACTIONS:
The Andaman and Nicobar Islands is a Union Territory of India. This is a group of 572 islands, islets and rocks formed by a submarine mountain range in the Bay of Bengal, more than a 1000km from the east coast of India. The islands form an arc over a distance of 800km, from near Myanmar towards Indonesia.

The original inhabitants of the islands are many tribal groups. Over the last century due to the policy of settling people from mainland India here, the indigenous tribes are facing extinction. These tribes belong to two groups: the Onge, Sentinelese, Jarawa and Andamanese of Negroid descent inhabit Andaman islands, while the Shompen and Nicobarese live in Nicobar Islands. Non-Indian nationals need permits to visit Andaman Islands while the Nicobar Islands are inaccessible to tourists.

The Andaman Islands are divided into South, Middle and North Andaman. The islands are important for their unique ecosystem and are known for their evergreen tropical rainforest, corals, fishes and other marine life. Port Blair is the capital, the main town and the tourist hub in these islands.

In Port Blair the Cellular Jail was part of the British penal settlement during their rule in India and is now a national monument. The Chatham Saw Mill is one of the oldest and largest saw mills in Asia. Mount Harriet is the second highest peak in Andaman Islands and ideal for trekking and bird watching. Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park at Wandoor comprises 15 islands and offers a rich variety of marine life and activities like snorkeling and glass bottomed boat rides. Andaman Water Sports Complex is under repairs after the damage due to the tsunami in 2004. It offers water surfing, skiing, water scooters, etc.

Havelock Island is known for the Radhanagar Beach and for scuba diving, snorkeling and mangrove creeks. From here one can visit other islands like Neil Island and Long Island. Baratang, Rangat, Mayabandar and Diglipur are known for their unspoilt beaches.
